I like to believe that Fantasy Baseball isn't about luck. Fantasy Football is all luck. In Baseball, you should be able to look at matchups and trends and numbers and make logical, informed decisions on who to play and who to sit.
This year more than ever I believe stinking luck is creeping into my fantasy baseball league. My good friend in the same brutal cutthroat league has been very good in our 12 team H2H points keeper league. He has three big guns injured: Derrek Lee, Coco Crisp, and Rich Harden. He's been able to coast to a 5-1 record by having plug ins like Casey Blake, Shawn Green, and Akinori Otsuka start getting hot. I'm not begrudging my friends scouting capability but geez, it's getting ridiculous.
Hey, lady luck finally smiled on me last night. I'm going against the guy who has Brandon Webb. Webb is cruising until he coughs up the lead to Chan Ho Park, but luckily
'Zona came back to tie and eventually win the game for my closer Valverde. Crazy game.
Is anyone else seeing luck bearing it's ugly head in their by the numbers approach? Do people know of any good voodoo rituals to get luck on their side?
